Hi! I'm Alberta,
I am an Italian illustrator, currently based in London, UK.
I have been drawing since the age of 18 months, when the face of an upside-down Santa appeared through my crayons.
As a child I used to prefer sitting on my own, drawing with chalk pastels on the floor of the playground, rather than playing ball games.
Nature and animals feature in most of my drawings - I love them! - as well as people from different cultural and ethnic backgrounds.
In my spare time I love traveling, running in the park or simply taking care of my numerous plants.
